High Hopes® for Pets Foundation awards $500 grants to 3 more rescue groups
JULY 22, 2013
21 grants given since September 2011
The Animal Care League (Oak Park, IL)
Founded in 1973, the Animal Care League has been helping homeless pets in the Oak Park Community for 40 years. Their mission is not only to protect, care for and find home for homeless pets, but they also assist low income families with spay/neuter and pet care, and recently added a mobile clinic as well that offers low cost vaccinations and microchips to area residents. In 2012, they found homes for 900 pets. The High Hopes® for Pets Foundation grant will be used to purchase a replacement microchip scanner for the shelter that has grown quite old!
Found Chicago (Chicago, IL)
Found Chicago is a no-kill, all-breed rescue group that seeks to re-home the most medically and behaviorally challenged dogs that would otherwise be euthanized. Individual care and carefully constructed rehabilitation programs are developed for each dog’s needs. All adoptions begin as foster-to-adopt, which allows everyone to adjust to life together. Adopters are encouraged to enroll in training as soon as possible to strengthen bonds. The grant from The High Hopes® for Pets Foundation will be used to continue to provide the resources it takes to rehabilitate and provide behavioral training services to adopters.
Friends of Noah (Wisconsin)
Supported by an all-volunteer staff, Friends of Noah places animals in foster homes where they are provided with love and medical attention to ensure they are in good health before adoption. Their organization is best known for taking the biggest challenges with animals that need a great amount of medical care or behavioral work. “Annie” a wonderful example, came into the organization almost completely bald with severe skin and ear infections, mange, many infected teeth, worms and not spayed. It took Friends of Noah several thousand dollars to rehabilitate her, and now she’s since been adopted and living in a wonderful, forever home where she’s the reigning princess. Friends of Noah has several community outreach programs focused on children’s education and benefiting lower income households.
